hormiga carpintera

a mural painted for Fiesta de Colores, an earthquake relief project working in the Ecuadorian coast that aims to revitalize the tourist economy in the area after the 2016 earthquake.
This piece depicts a carpenter ant rebuilding and mending a broken wall as a metaphor for the community that resides in the town and that is currently reconstructing and organizing to move forward.
